WATCH: Football player's sister runs on to field during game

Well, Thanksgiving dinner at this family's house next month could be more interesting than usual...

On Saturday, Buffalo and Western Michigan played the highest-scoring game in FBS history, with Western Michigan pulling out a 71-68 victory after seven overtimes.

But as improbable as that was, it doesn't really compare to what happened during the first overtime of the game.

Western Michigan's Donnie Ernsberger scored a touchdown in the first OT, prompting his sister to rush the field and give him a big hug.

The only problem, of course, is Ernsberger's touchdown didn't end the game, because this is college football, not the NFL.

According to Sports Illustrated, Western Michigan received a 15-yard penalty for the actions of Ernsberger's sister, who was kicked out of the game.

Fortunately, Western Michigan went on to win anyway -- eventually. All's well that ends well?
